With ‘Materials Project,’ DOE and MIT launch new materials properties search engine

By / November 3, 2011

The details on this are a little skimpy at this point, however the DOE caught my attention this afternoon when it announced that a “first-of-its-kind” online search tool for materials researchers is now available, especially because the agency is going as far as saying it will operate “like a ‘Google’ of materials properties.” DOE is…
